98.1 WOGL Loves Our Kids Radiothon


Last year, the 2017 98.1 WOGL Loves Our Kids Radiothon, brought to you by the Philadelphia Area Mazda Dealers, raised $300,439 for The Children’s Miracle Network at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia!  We know that with your generous donations this year in 2018, we can raise even more money!

All donations stayed local to support the resources required to treat thousands of children here in the Delaware Valley.
